HI, pigeon fluff/ 1 hailed Ted Dawson as he 
jammed the old Jalopy to a stop on front of 
Candy O'Connor's house. Candy scrambled into 
ihe ear and said breathlessly, "If we don't make 
some time, we'll be late for the afternoon session 

gain, Ted. Let's zoom/' boon they dashe i in ne 
main entrance of Hartwick High School. Miss 
Kramer- stopped their headlong rush for English 
Class w;ith, "No class for you two this period." 
They stopped short. "Aw, Miss Kramer," started 
Ted, in a pleading tone, "we're not that late, it 
was,all the fault of the old jalopy and . . /' She 
smiled tolerantly. "I've got a job for you demon 
reporters, one I think you'll find to your liking. 
Come along to the student council room. There's a 
meeting of the Hartwick Headlines staff." 

Hartwick Headlines was the names of the school 
tabloid and both Candy and Ted were active on 
the paper. Once inside the room, they settled down 
to hear the scoop. Miss Kramer announced that 
they had been appointed to interview two screen 
celebrities who were making a cross-country tour 
to further public interest in motion pictures. They 
were due to make a surprise appearance at the 
Hartwick Theatre that very evening. Ted leaned 
over to Candy, "Probably character actors," he 
whispered. "Not a chance. that they might ship 
Lana Lowry into town." Candy glared at him. Ted 
laughed softly, the mere' mention of another gal 
always ruffled Candy's feathers. Miss Kramer had 
been talking to the editors of the paper and she 
now stood up to speak to the group. "As I men- 
tioned earlier, this is a job any reporter would like, 
the actors to be interviewed are Miss Lana Low- 
ry . . ." "Yahoo," interrupted Ted, accompanied 
by a few low whistles from the other boys present. 
Miss Kramer raised her hand for silence. "... and 
Mr. Stewart Blair!" Candy's eyes went wide, as an 
envious sigh emanated from the rest of the girls 
In the room. "Candy and Ted hav£ an appoint- 
ment to interview the stars shortly before they 
go on stage," continued Miss Kramer. "Candy will 
see Mr. Blair in his dressing room and Ted will 
Interview Miss Lowry in her dressing room at the 
theatre." Miss Kramer gave them each last minute 
instructions on questions they were to ask, and 
they left the room together. 

"You needn't look so smug about interviewing 
Lana Lowry. Ted Dawson," said Candy, as they 
headed for the classroom, "I'm going to see the . 
heart throb of the ages, you know. Stewart Blair 
has always been my dream man." Ted snapped out 
of his revery as Candy swung into the classroom 
ahead of him. "I hope she doesn't fall for that 
zombie," he mused, as he sat down at his desk. 

As, they drove home from school they kept need- 
ling each other on the relative merits of the two 
stars they were to see later in the day. "You know 
these movie guys aren't impressed with small town 
high school girls. Candy," said Ted with a worried 
expression on his' face. "Besides, the guy is prob- 
ably a class A creep!" "Hmph! Don't expect Lana 
Lowry to swoon at the sight of you, Ted Dawson," 
replied Candy, frostily. "She's probably old enough 
to be your mother, anyway." Ted jammed the car 
to a stop in front of Candy's house. "Okay, cut the 
sarcasm," he snapped, "I'll call for you later and 
we'll beat it down to the theatre." "Thanks any- 
way," said Candy, snootily, "but I plan to go down 
in a taxicab. Goodbye!" And she stepped out of 
the car and stalked directly to the front door Ted 
chugged oft, looking furious. ' 



Once in the house, Candy scanned every movie 
magazine available. She read article after article 
on the glamorous Stewart Blair and after going 
over them thoroughly, she raced upstairs to spend 
the next hour in her room. She emerged looking 
years older. Her hair was slicked back in a chignon, 
her eyelashes glistened with mascara, ana she wore 
a slim dark dress from which she had removed 
the crisp white collar and cuffs. At the theatre, 
she climbed out of the taxi just as Ted coughed 
to a stop in his car. He was dressed in his best suit, 
his blond hair smoothed down and a carnation in 
his buttonhole. When he spoted Candy, his mouth 
fell open, "Egad, girl," he spouted. "Why the get- 
up?" "I wouldn't talk if I were you, Mr. Dawson," 
she replied haughtily. "It just so happens that 
Stewart Brair likes sophisticated women." 

In silence they entered the theatre and were 
directed to the stars' respective dressing rooms. 
The rooms were side by side and they both knock- 
ed on the door at the same time. Mr. Blair's valet 
opened the door first and Ted heard the throaty 
tones of Stewart Blair as he spoke from the dress- 
ing table. "If that's the high school reporter, let 
him in. Oh, it's a lovely, young lady. Come in, 
my dear." Ted glared after Candy as she entered 
the room. He didn't have much time for anger, 
however, because Miss Lowry's maid opened the 
door for him. Inside, he stared blankly at the 
barefaced woman who sat before the dressing table 
mirror. "Miss L-Lowry?" he asked incredulously. 
"That's right, sonny," she snapped. "Who did you 
expect, Lassie?" He swallowed the lump in his 
throat and. slumped into the chair to which she 
directed him. Then, in fascination, he watched as 
the plain woman started to apply her' make-up. 
"She must be forty years old," he mused. "Well, 
sonny," she sighed resignedly, "let's get to the 
questions, we haven't got all night, you know." 
Ted stumbled through the questions he had listed. 
He made notes as she replied, but he had a difficult 
time concentrating. He gulped when she snapped 
open the box containing her false eyelashes and 
watched, open-mouthed, as she slipped them into 
place, removed the towel from her very red hair, 
and turned to him, transformed into the movie 
beauty he had seen so many times on the screen. 
"Wow!" he exploded. "Do I look as you expected 
me to look now, sonny?" she laughed. "You know, 
Ot never does any harm to let you kids see the lily 
before it's gilded." Then she patted him on the 
head and dismissed him. He slumped out of the 
room, a disillusioned boy. At that precise moment, 
the wide-eyed Candy was watching her dream 
man adjust his toupe on his head. "You know, 
Candy," he crooned, "my public doesn't know that 
Stewart Blair wears a toupe. Nor is it general 
knowledge that I have a couple of grandchildren 
so I'll appreciate it if you'll just follow the press 
release my valet -will give you." Candy left his 
dressing room feeling like the world had fallen 
apart. 

Outside, she spotted Ted, loafing in his car and 
she contrived to walk past, her nose in the air. 
'Hey, dream queen," he shouted enthusiastically, 
"Can I give you a lift?" She turned, smiling. "You 
sure can, Ted," she said. "I'm in a hurry to get 
home and wash this stuff off my face." Ted helped 
her into the car. "Yeah," he said, "just stay as 
sweet as you are, Candy. No movie queens for 
this boy." And they both burst into helpless laugh- 
ter as the old jalopy leaped to a starU
